Woman Holds Up The Taco Bell Drive-Thru Lane For The Most Ridiculous Reason

(PCM) An Ohio woman caused quite a ruckus at the Taco Bell location in Euclid, Ohio for the most utterly ridiculous reason. The woman refused to move her vehicle out of the restaurants drive-thru lane and it got so intense that store employees had to contact the authorities to take over the situation.

So, if you’re wondering just why this woman was so darn “saucy” get ready for this!  The Taco Bell location just so happened to be out of “Mild” taco sauce! That’s it! No other reason. She was also irritated that they would not discount her food order by 50% off due to the inconvenience of not having the “Mild” sauce as they only had “Fire” sauce.

Since “Mild” sauce was the woman’s only condiment of choice she decided to make a big stink about the situation and refused to leave the drive-thru lane. Eventually, the authorities were able to get the woman to leave the Taco Bell location, but not before she created a major headache for both store employees and other restaurant patrons.

We are guess that she is probably banned from that particular Taco Bell for life! Thanks for ruining taco-time for everyone lady and making everyone else pretty “saucy” in the process!

Internet Trolls Cracker Barrel After A Man’s Wife Was Fired On His Birthday!

(PCM) What began as an innocent tweet by a man named Bradley Reid Byrd asking why a Cracker Barrel restaurant fired his wife after 11 dedicated years of service has now morphed into a hilarious internet trolling war with tons of internet users showing their support and demanding #justiceforbradswife!

Poor Brad was simply looking for answers as to why his wife was let go from her position and it just so happened that she was fired on his birthday of all days. Cracker Barrel did not respond to Brad’s tweet, but the internet sure did and now they are posting hundreds of reasons why Brad’s wife should have never been fired in the first place. Digging underneath all the sarcastic commentary and quips a Cracker Barrel manager did respond to the situation making a statement proclaiming that Brad’s wife was just not a good fit for the company any longer. According to Facebook user, Michelle Bowman Neuhauser, “Bradley Reid Byrd’s wife, Nanette, worked at the Corydon, Indiana Cracker Barrel for 11 years, was fired by a district manager named Gwen Alexander. Reason given was, “She wasn’t working out.” She’s an older woman whom coworkers/customers say was hardworking, averaged 50-60 hrs a week. Since CB wouldn’t give Brad and Nanette an answer, he posted his question on their FB page”

You know the folks on the internet can solve just about every mystery, so they are speculating that it was very young manager that fired Brad’s wife and that it may be a case of age discrimination, as Brad’s wife is assumed to be much older. Each and every time that Cracker Barrel’s social media team posts something new, their comments section is flooded with clever responses that urge them to pursue some kind of #justiceforbradwife!  She certainly deserves it at this point and we are sure the Cracker Barrel REALLY, REALLY regrets firing her at this point.

Some of the best social media responses can be found below:

Someone even started a Change.org petition urging Cracker Barrel to explain the termination of #BradsWife! The petition has already reached over 20,000 signatures and continues to grow. It has been delivered to Cracker Barrels corporate office! Don’t worry Brad’s wife … Brad and the internet love you even if Cracker Barrel doesn’t!

Say It Isn’t So! Dunkin Donuts Discontinues Their Famous Coffee Coolatta!

(PCM) Everyone is freaking out over the announcement that Dunkin Donuts will be discontinuing their famous Coffee Coolatta frozen beverages. What in the world will summer be like for us caffeine addicts now?

The Coffee Coolatta was first introduced back in 1994 and has been a Dunkin Donuts staple ever since. Chris Fuqua, Dunkin’s senior vice president of brand marketing said in a recent press conference announcing the Coffee Coolatta’s departure, “Our Coffee Coolatta isn’t good enough!”. Fuqua went on to reveal that the Coffee Coolatta will be getting a replacement in the form of the new Dunkin Donuts Frozen Coffee, which will be a blended beverage that gets it’s inspiration from Dunkin Donut’s iced coffee drinks and is made with coffee extract, sugar, and dairy.

Don’t get us wrong! We are certainly going to miss the beloved Coffee Coolatta, but we are kind of leaning towards the new Dunkin Donuts Frozen Coffee to be a better choice. Don’t some of you recall getting a weird aftertaste in your mouth after drinking a Coffee Coolatta? We do and it was kind of gross. The Coolatta was more like a coffee-flavored slushie and we hope the new Dunkin Frozen Coffee will remind us more of a smoothie or  frozen Frappuccino from Starbucks without the insane price tag.

Dunkin Donuts hopes that the introduction of the new Frozen Coffee drinks will help “contemporize” their frozen drink platform and help pave the way for even more new innovations for the company. Rest assured that your favorite fruit-flavored Coolatta beverages will still be available and additional flavors will be rolled out again this summer. Brand marketing manager Anthony Bonitatibus says,  “We have to continue to innovate against coffee, because of its importance to us as a business. We’re always thinking about what is the next big thing in coffee, because we can’t just rest on our laurels.”

Starbucks Unveils New Pastel-Colored Cups For Spring!

(PCM) We could all use a little “spring” in our step after coming out of such a cold and dreary winter, so people were overjoyed with the new pastel-colored cups that Starbucks has unveiled to usher us coffee-lovers into the spring season. The new bright and cheery cups with be available for hot drink orders at all Starbucks locations in the U.S. and Canada beginning on March 16.

The pastel spring cups will only be available for a limited time and the colors available are blue, green and yellow. They also feature large white dots in the center, where adorable designs such as an umbrella, a sun or anytime of symbol can be hand-drawn in by the barista. (Let’s hope they are artistic!)

According to a press release from Starbucks, “After the gray days of winter, there’s nothing quite like those first few bursts of color that indicate the arrival of springtime. Starbucks first began offering seasonal cups more than 20 years ago with its first holiday cup and has since introduced cups celebrating autumn and summer.” This year will mark the first time that the company has introduced a new cup design for the springtime season.

Starbucks is also releasing two new iced and hot macchiato drinks: the Coconutmilk Mocha Macchiato and the Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato. Now we have even more reason to hit our local Starbucks this spring! Delicious new drinks and new cups!  It’s a win/win!

New Peeps Oreos Lead To Some ‘Interesting’ Bodily Reactions

(PCM) Nabisco, the parent company of delicious Oreo cookies, has unveiled Peeps-flavored Oreo cookies as one of their new spring flavors. The Peeps Oreos feature a bright pink creme filling. If you love both Oreos and Peeps this sounds delightful, correct? Well, while no one has yet to complain about the taste, it appears that the Peeps Oreos can leave you with a different type of bodily reaction.

People are beginning to complain that the new Peeps Oreos are turning both their saliva and poop a disgusting bright pink color. Think very unnatural! A food blogger that goes by the name Junk Food Guy had a chance to try the new Peeps Oreos and while he did say that the Peeps Oreos were “a delicious sweet marshmallow Oreo” he later commented, “Dude, the creme turned my saliva bright pink! BRIGHT PINK! This is sort of horrifying – this is the type of food dye where an hour later, when I went to brush my teeth, IT TURNED MY TOOTHBRUSH PINK. What the heck. WHAT THE HECK.”

Don’t eat peeps flavored Oreos guys… #peepsoreos #peepsoreo #pink

A post shared by Sarah Kistler (@sarahsmil_e) on

Another person who claimed that they consumed an entire package of Peeps Oreos went into more graphic details claiming that the cookies turned his poop bright pink as well! Thank goodness there is no photo evidence to support that particular claim, but I think we will just take his word for it.

A representative from Oreo has commented on the situation saying, “The Oreo Peep limited-edition sandwich cookies contain a bright pink food coloring, FD&C Red Number 3. We use this ingredient in the product consistent with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Certain foods can temporarily color the tongue and inside of the mouth. This is common with brightly colored products such as ice pops, gelatins and drink mixes, as well as with certain fruits and vegetables, including beets and cranberries. Such foods can also temporarily color stool.”

Hey, at least they are acknowledging it! Would this keep you from trying new Peep Oreos?  Despite the pink poop situation, there is still a slight possibility that we will give these bad boys a try!

The Oddest Beverage Of The 90’s, Zima, Is Making A Comeback!

(PCM) Children of the 90’s generation can rejoice as their malt beverage of choice, Zima, will be making a comeback very soon! The citrus-flavored malt liquor beverage was incredibly popular given it’s clever ad campaign in the early 90’s, however after some changes were made to Zima’s initial formula, it eventually made it’s way to the retirement heap, but not for long!

Zima will be coming back for a limited time only, but we assume that if the popularity soars again then it will be offered once again for a longer period of time.  According to a MillerCoors spokesperson, the Zima has already been manufactured and sent out to distribution warehouses.

Despite being taken off the market in the U.S. in the late 90’s, Zima still remained a popular beverage of choice in Japan where it has been consistently available.  With the help of Eater.com, we have gathered a few fun facts about Zima in anticipation for it’s upcoming relaunch .

  1. Zima was named after the Russian word for ‘winter’ by ad writer Jane Espenson. Espenson would later go on to write for the HBO series “Game Of Thrones”. Seems appropriate somehow!
  2. When Zima was launched in 1994 it tested well with bar patrons, however it turned out that they were only curious to try Zima and never ordered any second rounds of the drink.
  3. Zima became the subject of a many, many jokes from David Letterman, who suggested that it was the preferred beverage of kooky senators, Santa Claus, and the ghost of Elvis. The brands commercials were also pop culture gold, as they were completely zany.
  4. Zima was always more popular with women than with men. The company tried to launch Zima Gold, but it failed miserably.

Will you be running out to grab some Zima and a bit of 90’s nostalgia?
